    I'm no newbie, but the thing is i was surfing and i landed on xpmania's site in which there was 20 facts about winxp. ONe of them was that you can lock your xp desktop by pressing windows key + l. NOw everytime i restart instead of seeing the icons of each user that are clickable i see a windows 98 type login were you have to put in your name and password if any. Has anyone been through this, please tell me how to make it go back to normal. THanks, for your time

    Try yourselves pressing the windows key and L and see if you have the same problem when you restart.

    OK.... Im not 100% sure what ssj4conejo is talking about.

    If you want WinXp to boot into windows without having to login there are three ways that I know of.

    1. Cant remember where its at, but theres a setting in Win Xp somewhere... Not much help there.:D

    2. Get tweakXP and there is a setting in it to auto log you on. You never see the login screen. You go right into windows......

    3. Format.....

    Hope this is what you are looking for.... I will hunt around in XP and see if I cant find that setting !!!!

    :cool:

    THanks GUys

    Thankyou so much for your support. None of your methods work but i tried this i'll describe in case someone else runs into this problem. Just use stylexp and apply a stylexp and apply a different style. LOL it was just that, it fixed it now i can see the list of log-in names with a picture next to them.
